We have recently found out we are expecting another baby. This will give up 5 kids under 5. Our first 3 were born with the assistance of IVF, as we were told we had less than 5% chance of naturally conceiving. Well, we were shocked and surprised when we naturally conceived my son, but didn’t think it could happen again, BUT IT DID. I am currently 8 weeks and have had very long and deep discussions with my husband, doctors and family as to whether we will keep the baby. I was always anti-abortion, but I am please to say after many tears and talks, we have decided to keep our baby. I am excited and happy, but also scared about the work ahead and also worried about others opinions. Do other MoM’s think we are crazy???

  • No I don’t think you’re crazy, although you very possibly could be after raiding your 5 babies


  • No you certainly are not crazy. You will be flat stick for a while but happy. Then it will slow down a bit as they get older.


  • Not crazy, I had 4 kids and whilst its noisy and crazy I wouldn’t have it any other way. Those first few years are hard but it gets easier as they get older.


  • Nope not crazy at all….how’s it going ?


  • No you’re not crazy! Who cares what others think?


  • keep it. when your baby is older and you look back you will be happy you did


  • Dont let what other people say bother you its none of there business. More the merrier I would have had more if could I didn’t have ny first till 35 due to infertility and then 2 at nearly 37 both were ceasereans. I would love to have another one but not sure if should or not . coz of ceasereans and age so yeah 5 is good, you go mummy :)


  • It will be hard work, but nice to have them all grow up together. I grew up as one of 5 kids & loved being in a big family. Always have someone to play with, talk to & share experiences with. As an adult I really cherish all my siblings even more.
    The more the merrier I say :)
